Dave Howard, director of the Cyber Threat Analysis Center at ECS, and Luke Gigiano, cyber threat analyst, gave a talk at ElasticON Global 2023 exploring how ECS analysts employ many of Elastic’s key capabilities to optimize our Security Operations. See below for the full video.
The ever-evolving threat landscape requires cybersecurity analysts to detect, analyze, and respond to threats quickly, accurately, and at scale. At ECS, the Cyber Threat Analysis Center (CTAC), our premier threat analysis and advanced analytics capability, serves as the tip of the spear in threat monitoring, analysis, detection, and response.
Critical to providing powerful solutions to our customers are our partnerships with emergent security technologies such as Elastic, the leading platform for search-powered solutions. We leverage Elastic security information, event management, and analytics solutions to outpace adversaries, operate at scale, and act decisively. ECS has more Elastic-certified engineers than any other organization (aside from Elastic itself), and we manage one of the world’s largest Elastic environments.
